Það sem verður gert
The best way to explore a country is with your taste-buds! Our 'Cheese School' takes place in our 1930's chambre d'hote in the beautiful Livradois Mountains and forests. Without leaving the kitchen table, we take you on a journey around the famous Auvergne 'Route des Fromages' (saving you a several day road trip!), tasting and discussing the Auvergne's 5 AOP cheeses and, as a bonus, lesser-know local artisan cheeses. Taste different milk types - goat, cow and sheep, raw milk versus pasteurised, fresh cheese alongside mature. Immerse yourself in French food culture with myths and legends behind each cheese. Discover how to pair different styles with wines, beers, ciders or soft drinks and try interesting new accompaniments. Learn what to look for when buying cheese, how best to store, cut and present your cheeseboard for personal pleasure or parties alike. Our cheese tastings are in English, include accompaniments, drinks and could quite happily replace lunch or supper! And, if like us, you fall in love with the region's produce, we'll happily assist you to 'meet the maker' and share our favourite markets and 'secret' artisan producers.
I am an award winning chef, food writer and broadcaster, with a passion for local food and an obsession with cheese. With my husband (an award winning restaurateur with over 20 years of experience pairing wine, beer, spirit and soft drinks with diverse menus and foods) we live in the Auvergne, possibly the most famous region in France for cheese. Together, we have trained hundreds of hospitality professionals (as well as a few 'normal' people!) in the art of cheese tasting, pairing, handling and presentation. We'd love to share our passion and our amazing local cheeses with you!
